Pallative Care and Chronic Disease Management
This chapter provides a brief overview of palliative care. The relationship between palliative care, the nursing role, quality of life for patients with serious illness and their families, and information pertinent to the goals of care and transitions of care are discussed. Additionally, some key national organizations that are instrumental in providing palliative care resources and guidelines are described and presented. Symptom management in palliative care is reviewed; resources are provided for further information and up-to-date symptom management guidelines. Finally, a case study is presented to pull the elements of palliative care together in the context of advance practice nursing.
